Drawing, form drawing, painting, and modeling are the fine arts that comprise a vital component of the DWS curriculum.
Working with these artistic processes is crucial to developing creative thought and complements the logical, ordered thinking of science and mathematics instruction. Fine arts teach problem-solving, help students develop the capacity for observation, and hone their ability to make qualitative and quantitative judgments. Perhaps the most important aspect is that the arts help to school the feeling life of the students by enhancing creative thinking and imagination, leading to a fuller experience of self and a reliable sense of the aesthetic. The ability to create inspires a sense of wonder and beauty and builds capacities as the underpinnings of social harmony reveal themselves in artistic beauty and balance.
